    No need for this to even be close, this better be an easy win. Knicks are running Jose Calderon and a summer league roster out there.

    Don't play with a wounded animal.

    Knicks on a 13 game losing streak, play the 1st 10 mins like they are the last 10 mins and that's all you will have to play.

    Goof around and let them think they can win? Then they will play with the hustle and energy of a game 7 finals opponent. Just put them out of their misery and let em know "Not tonight."

    Knowing the Rockets, they will probably ____ around for them and add to the drama.

    Can somebody pls tell Ariza that he's allowed to pass when somebody passes the ball to him on the perimeter?

    That would be foolish. Given the way the Spurs and OKC are struggling right now and the Suns are on a roll, it's not crazy to think that one of them may miss the playoffs. Shoot, if the Pelicans get it together, BOTH could wind up in the lottery.


    The Rockets were also missing some key guys that night.

    Come out focused. Play a deep rotation to offset the back-to-back. And above all, when they're down never stop kicking them - this is Derek Fisher we're talking about and relentlessly kicking him should be a full-time policy whether he's up or down.

    Chances of Fisher flopping on the sideline are pretty high for this one, then he yells at the official for not calling it. Can't believe we ever traded for that turd.

    We win by 15+

    TNT game... I predict we come out flat. I hope I'm wrong.

    We do have a TNT curse, but the Rockets would still have to try to lose this game.

    Coming back to the Garden against his former team and in primetime, Lin should have an outstanding game. Hopefully we see more of Linsanity this game.

    Rockets with the W

    Some bulletin board material to make sure the Rockets take care of business tonight.

    Anthony has missed the last 4 games. If he is not playing I say we rest Harden and Ariza.
